The rims that suit a Ford Ranger will be the ones that fit the factory alloy wheels on a standard 2WD or 4WD model. This means a range of sizes from 16 to 17 inches.
Many aftermarket wheels also fit, but you need to make sure they are 5-lug and will fit your particular engine – fits the EFI engine maybe doesn’t fit the ED Falcon six-cylinder, for example).
Possible wheel brands include:
a) OZ Racing b) ROH c) Rotary d) Xenon e) Fondmetal f) Yoko g) Dragstar h) Borbet i) Nismo j) ADVAN Racing k) WedsSport l ) Dazz m ) West l ) OE Wheels n) SSR o) NFS Performance
a) OZ Racing – available in sizes 16, 17 and 18 inches. Some models are OE for some Ford models, e.g. they come with the XR6 Turbo alloy wheel as standard (also fits Holden Commodore SS). Other models come with a five split-spoke, or ten-spoke, polished finish (looks like chrome). No other brands mentioned specifically below can be guaranteed to suit, but any of the following will fit too: Rotary, Xenon, Fondmetal, Yoko, Borbet etc.
b) ROH – available in sizes 16″x 7″, 17″ x 7″, 17″ x 8″, 19 “x 8″. Two finishes available: Diamond Cut and Black Chrome Finish.
c) Rotary – available in sizes 16″x 7″, 17″ x 7″, 17″ x 8”. Three finishes: Machine, Polished or ‘Gloss’.
d) Xenon – three models only – BMW style with a square centre cap in polished aluminium. All have black painted insides and a mirror face in the centre, which adds about 3cm extra diameter to the wheel. The larger BMW style alloy rim has four split-spoke designs for improved brake cooling airflow. Also, the latest models have a bevelled lip around the outside edge of the rim for easier tyre pressure checks etc. These ford ranger wheels are designed to fit most 4WD models up to 2010. Earlier models had a smaller diameter centre cap, but this has now changed, so they are all the same size.
e) Fondmetal – available in sizes 16″ x 7″, 17″x 7″ and 18″x 8″. All have silver painted insides. These wheels are designed to fit Ford Ranger 4WD only based on the factory 20 hole pattern – based on that; they will also suit Suzuki Vitara/Grand Vitara, Holden Trailblazer, Mitsubishi Pajero etc. f) Yoko – available in high gloss black only (17 x7 or 19 x8).
